The 24-year-old Burrow had pleaded guilty to felony animal cruelty for tying Riley’s feet to his snout with military parachute cord and tossing the dog into a pond.

Superior Court Judge Jim Ammons sentenced Burrow to 30 days in jail, 24 months of supervised probation, and 100 hours of community service.
